Firth of Fifth (Live Royal Albert Hall, 2013)

The Genesis song Firth of Fifth from the 1973 album Selling England by the pound is one of my all time favourites (in my most recent 'best songs of all time' list it came in at 4th place). Steve Hackett, the guitarist of Genesis in those years, revived it earlier this decade on his album Genesis Revisted. Here it is in a stunning live rendition, with the legendary John Wetton (RIP) on lead vocals, like on the album. A treat. Art Rock score: 10/10 (brilliant masterpiece, one of 200 best songs of all time).
